Derel Glass Studio

Saturday and Sunday, 11am - 6pm

I am a glass artist working in hand engraved glass and stained glass. Utilizing a handheld rotary tool with diamond and rubber burs, I hand carve images into glass. In a direct extension of my glass engravings, I use my engraved plates for printmaking in a process called vitreography. The deeply engraved and textured portions of the glass plate become embossed on the resulting one-of-a-kind prints.

Inspired by the beauty and amazing variety of creatures found in nature, my artwork largely focuses on animals, sea life and plants. I use the fragility, colors and luminescent qualities of glass to capture and reflect upon the delicate nature of the world around us. My interests in Celtic knotwork and the artistic movements and designs of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods also influence and shape my work.
